    Felt we had to do it at least once, thought we'd hate it but we're pleasantly surprised. Villasol is a nice site and we've managed to bag a sunny pitch in the 600s near other Funsters (yay! :)). Had a walk into the centre yesterday and were surprised at how busy it was, but also how clean and how polite the drivers are (quite important for us given that we have a little motorbike to get about on) although you have to be a bit careful of the mobility scooters. All in all very happy to stay here for a few days.
    Nice one Benni. (y)

    Hi Mark

    You are still a few days ahead of us, we should arrive tomorrow but plan on getting into cap Blanche at Albir to catch up with friends, if you are passing have a look in and say hello.

    If we are out and about we will call into Villasol and see who is there, stayed there two years ago, nice position.

    Martin

    Never been to benidorm but neighbours do quite a lot for winter sun and say same as you. We've got heavy snow fall this morning so gonna be a cold one and heavy enough to stick I think.

    Loved it!

    No I stocked up with Spanish Gin before we left 16L at €8 a litre. The other night we did a blind taste test with this and some Hendricks, out of 6 of us, 4 preferred the Spanish :)

    Nothing like a 5 am English breakfast, with wine, at John & Josephs to settle the stomach.
